Know Why He Is Good

17 And as He was setting out on His journey, a man ran up and knelt before Him and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.” ~ Mark 10:17-18

Jesus asked the rich young ruler a bold question, why do you call me good? Jesus wasn’t saying; I’m not good. He was giving the rich young ruler to make a distinction between Him and mankind. Today, Jesus still asks us this question. He’s still knocking at the door of our hearts. He’s still giving us the opportunity today to proclaim who He is.

Jesus is our LORD, our God, our Savior, and our friend. He is our everything. He is the Good Shepherd that lays down His life for His sheep. The Good Shepherd that gives life and life more abundant. He is the living water, the bread of life. He is the Alpha and the Omega. The beginning and the end. The First and the Last. Jesus is the giver of life. He took our place on the cross and gave us the free gift of Eternal Life to anyone who will believe. This is why He is good.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Know Why He Is Good.
